trail cam follies


Boar

Recommended Posts

Never heard this one before but a coworker of mine came to work this morning, pretty disgruntld. Apparently he went to check his trail cam on friday an couldnt find it right away, after a quick investegation it was foundout that he had set is cam in a small cluster of youn aspen an the one tree he attached his cam to which was about 6 inches diameter, was cut down by a beaver an an then drug to the lodge where he found the cam still attached to the tree totally submerged an ruined. Funny, but not funny.

I guess the moral of the story is. Put camera on big tree so beaver can't drag it to the water and hope that it doesn't get smashed when the tree comes down. Maybe a person should start a trailcam insurance company. I wonder if there would be a market for it?

Can you imagine the opportunity for fraud & abuse by owners on that one? Oh man, my 6 year-old el cheapo camera got destroyed by a bear... Can I get the money to go towards a new one?

I bet there were some interesting pics on that cam prior to being submerged but couldn't they still pull the card or does that get ruined also?

Thats pretty funny no matter who you are.

If it were my camera I'm pretty sure I'd be laughing pretty hard. What else could you do besides laugh?

That's funny right there now! I had a tree stand in a tree and after the storm winds blew all the trees down, I couldn't tell which tree it was in! I couldn't even get close to it! sick

We still have a permanent stand in a huge basswood tree that uprooted two years ago, that the floor's now perpendicular to the ground instead of parallel. If we could stand the tree back up the stand's still completely undamaged...

      Does anyone have A 5 person sleeper ice house for rent during February 6th through the 10th?

      Police brutality is a concern right now in many areas, and everyone is working to safeguard their rights. But it is this situation itself that needs to be examined. Having knowledge of police brutality was really helpful to me. Try this at . There is a ton of information here https://supremestudy.com/essay-examples/police-brutality/ on it, which you may also examine in further detail huge learn more about. I hope it will be helpful to you

      Finding between 3-7 inches of ice around most of the st cloud area. Was on one of the bigger lakes and one of the shallower ones in our area today. On the larger lake,  lots of ice in the bays, but main lake had roughly 3 inches where I checked.  The Shallow one had right around 7 inches.  Fish bit very well on one, and not so great on the other.

      Polkiss this...   Logging is the only way out of the Smokey the Bear debacle. We've created so much fuel in the understory from fire suppression. Logging, BIGTIME may be the only answer. Top off the past century of fire suppression with now hundreds of thousands of acres of bug kill in our mature forests when as much as a bug farts, millions of acres lie waste to everything from fire, even micro organisms in the soil. Then heavy rain, or snowmelt washes away what's left...... Log Baby Log 👍👍 and flood the mills with wood, not ash.

      many thanks to you all for providing the information.  it is appreciated.

      Knowing and comprehending it myself For instance, logging has increased significantly over time. This can't possibly be permitted. I can speak for myself when I say that we now need to consider how to read about this essay [source] because I was able to learn a lot and even used this information to write a course at the university. Therefore, if anyone needs some knowledge about deforestation, it is useful from both a theoretical and practical point of view. Everyone must protect the environment!

      Welcome to the forum. Thanks for the safety tip.  Always good to know where springs in lakes are!  👍

      Ok I did not check ice thicknesses yet but green, blue, baxter, lori, and elk all had anglers on them. I hope to check thicknesses soon.
    • Cookie123
      There is also some springs in the way back of blue lake ( In nashwauk MN) If you go back there you may run into some if you go to the right or the left there is some both directions so I would suggest not going back there or if you do i would check the ice every 25ft or so at least have fun out there
